When they call me to inquire about whether or not there is some behavior in the hunting dog (during hunting action) they tend to think about the target, they think about why this dog does not have sample or charge or shows upward insecurity of the flight of the partridge or the pheasant on duty.
We do not think that in the training process many times, most of them, we eat parts of the process and, therefore, we leave the dog with parts of the learning to be able to live and to retain.
We talk about specimens in the infantile and adolescent stages, where the hunter knows what he wants to obtain from his dog (functionality) and (efficacy) but he forgets that for that to happen first they must learn, develop those functions for those who have Been selected and raised (in addition to giving us company).
To be functional is to show the genetic potential in a practical, simple and effective way. For that to happen the first thing is to be very clear at what stage of learning the student is and not to burn stages precipitously.
When the learning process is performed and effectively established by the student, that is when its functionality will provide us with the effective response so valued in well-worked individuals, with experience and optimal qualities in their functions.
The characteristics, the set of them, and the instincts together with their genetic powers make it possible (in addition to an adequate means and management).
The sample, the smell, the search, the collection, etc. That is why, to have a well-trained, functional and effective dog, we must, yes or yes, be aware of our responsibility to provide them with that training, in a correct and respectful way with their emotional and physical state.
Never forget that they deserve all the respect and that nobody is born taught. To get more out of his genetic powers for work and enjoy him and us from hunting and coexistence at home is essential to invest time in training. If you are not sure or you need help, ask a professional.
The fear of the hunting dog
Because they define everything as FEAR and in many cases it is something that is not?
Almost always we get opinions from many colleagues and some of the sector also when they see a hunting dog (according to them) with FEAR.
It is not always scary though it may seem, often approaching but ... it is only an approximation to that which so easily end up being sentenced as Fear.
From here begin the problems, begins the Calvary to, at best, look for solutions to that which both incapacitates the hunting dog.
If you start by not knowing how to evaluate what it is correct, you will hardly have optimal, positive and rewarding results, not only for the owner but also for our dog, who is suffering from the problem of behavior.
The lack of a suitable means, a suitable treatment, and good experiences, pleasant and productive together with some personality trait to facilitate it are the perfect breeding ground so that the dog is not able to normally cope with many routine situations of Coexistence and hunting as it should be.
Hence the importance of taking time in the early stages of emotional development in the puppies to facilitate learning that enables them and without ceasing to be observers take note of their evolution and development.
See how he reacts to strange people, new situations for him, places and people and even other dogs. Take note in this first and most important stage in your life of everything that does not seem a logical answer, safe and tempered.
If it is the puppies or dogs that tend to worry about any particular reason or not in normal conditions do not let time pass and go to a professional ....... able to evaluate and know where to indicate the best way forming To the owner and so do not make management errors that aggravate the problem. It is very easy to end up leading to more problems and even learning to FEAR ........
Many may think that in this little article does not say much about fear but in essence, if you read it calmly and you stripped of so much myth iniquitous then you take advantage.
If you have a puppy, young or adult who has behavior problems but in the hunt seems to be removed everything falls within this profile and you will be evaluated directly thinking that you are FEAR and that it is very complicated to treat.
But the important thing is to know that you face correctly and not so easily tying FEAR in the hunting dog.
PS: Of course, there are dogs with fear, but you should not prescribe so much miracle therapy for everything that seems to be FEAR.
We hope you find it interesting and practical this small reading.
